Granby Co. Ready
to Operate Copper
Mountain Property
That the Granby Consolidated
Mining Smelting and Power Company, will commence operations on
the Copper Mountain property at
Princeton, just as soon as word is
received from New York, was the
statement made to the Herald
during the week, by Mr. H. S.
Munroe, general manager of the
Company.
While there is no doubt that the
property will be acquired by the
Granby ' Company, Mr.' Munroe
stated that so far, no word had yet
been received from New York,
regarding the transfer ofthe property.
As soon as word is reoeived it is
the intention to start operations at
once, and the mill will be working
just as soon as possible. The mill is
capable of concentrating 2000 tons
ore per day, and no enlargement to
the mill is at present contemplated.
The concentrates will be shipped to
Trail, under an agreement, made
by the Copper Mountain Company
with the Trail Smelter;»■-*: :: - ^
, Mr. Munroe stated that a total
of about 400 men will be employed
ou the property, and it is estimated
that between 17,000.000 and 18,]
000,000 pounds of copper will be
produced each year. The ore
reserves at the mine total 5,583,000
tons. The ore is low grado being
about 1.7 per cent, copper. Other
bodies of ore are expected however
to be proven up, as the property
has not been fully developed. The
ore is of hard grinding quality.
The railway running to the mine
from the G. P. B. tracks, is owned
by the C. P; R. Company and will
be repaired by them. The railway
is about 18 miles in length.
In reply to a question regarding
. oopper output by the Granby Co.,
Mr. Munroe stated that contrary
to the general belief, the Granby
Co. have always been the largest
oopper produoers in British Columbia, having an annual Output of
around 30,000,000 pounds for several years, which figure beats the
Britannia output by several million
pounds.
Weekly Meeting of
Anyox Community
League Council
The regular weekly meeting of
the Community League Counoil
was held in the Reoreation Hall,
Wednesday, February 21st. Present Secy-Treas. Lowry, Councillors
Mrs; MoKay, Messrs, Noel, Bowley
Seidelman and Murdoch.
On the reading' of the minutes of
the preceding meeting, they were
adopted on motion of Mr. Rowley,
which was seconded by Mr. Noel.
The Seoretary reported arrangements made with Mr. Dick Greenwell, of Prinoe Rupert for a basketball game ion Thursday night,
beWeen the Colts of Prince Rupert
and an Anyox All Star team.
This was to take place in the Gymnasium, the visiting team to get
the entire receipts in lieu of the
guarantee originally asked for.
Advertisements announcing the
Annual Meeting for Wednesday
Februaay 28th, had been put up
about town. Advertisements for
the Barn Dance( to be' held on
March 9th. had been ordered. A
score aboard had been placed' in
the Gymnasium. It was suggested that spectators at the basketball
game on Thursday night should be
allowed to stand along both lines
against the walls.
Surveys Made for
Kitsault River Bridge
Prince Rupert Win
Basketball Game
The most spectacular game of
basket-ball played in Anyox this
season, was staged on Thursday
evening at the A- C. L. Gymnasium
when the Prince Rupert Colts defeated an All Star Anyox team
, with a score of 32 to 21.   A record
i orowd witnessed the game, whioh
| was full" of thrills from start to
finish;    The Prinoe Rupert team
are a speedy bunch and deserved
| to win.   They left for home the
same evening, well pleased with
■ themselves and everybody else.
' Mr. Rowley objected to specta*
'tors being taken care of in the way
suggested; The Chair did not
think the suggestion a bad one,
Mr. Seidelman thought that men
might stand there, while the gallery oould be reserved for the
ladies. Mr. Simpson asked if he
could speak, and being accomodated by the Chair stated that there
should be no reservations for anybody.
The regular routine having been
disposed of, the Chairman declared
the meeting open or discussion,
and immediately stated that be
had been asked by the Council to
request the resignation of the
retary. The Secretary then asked
that the reasons be stated. Mr
Seidelman spoke emphatically
against Mr. Lowry's declaration
that it was the unanimous wish of
the Counoil that the Secretary
should resign, and it became the
unanimous verdict of the meeting
that there was no justification in
the request as made. Mr. Lowry
stated that the Counoil wanted a
change, and he was personally of
the opinion that a change would
be for the better, and this was the
only reason for the request. There
was nothing against Mr. Kelley,
other than he was'nt a good mixer.
At this point, Mr. W. Cullinan
oited the instance of the former
Seoretary, Mr! Fred Brown, who
had been dragrooned out for the
very thing which they now stated
that Mr. Kelley laoked. Mr. P.
McDougal) moved that the resignation be not considered.   Others
The first step towards the construction of thjs muoh needed
bridge across the Kitsault River,
was made during the week, when
J. A. Stephen, assistant engineer
of publio works for this district,
and Geo. Young, district superintendent of roads and trails com
menoed survey work.
A survey was; made from the
end of First Avenue, which was
graded last year, to a point 4000
feet above the wing dam. Soundings are now being taken at all
possible bridge sites for the purpose
of determining the depth to bed
rock, as the piers on which the
bridge is to be built will rest on
solid rock.
While a site has not yet been
selected it will in all probability be
above the wing dam.
No guarantee has yet been made
by the government that the bridge
will be built this year, but it is
expeoted that this will shortly be
forthcoming. With extensive logging operations being ensured for
a number of years, on the opposite
side of thei river, and' the laot that
the town is absolutely out off from
the mining districts of the north-
east'fork of the Kitsault river and
the Illiance river, makes the building of a bridge a necessity.
Alice Arm Timber
Will be Cut
The officers for the ensuing year
of the Anyox Lodge, B. P, O. Elks,
were installed on Thursday evening, February 15th. The officers
were installed Jjy'R. V. G. Lepine,
D. D4G. E. R., of Northern British
Columbia.
who spoke against the methods
employed to bring about the
request for the Secretary's resignation, were Mrs. W. F. Eve, Mr.
J. Blaney, Mr., J. Murdoch and
Mr. Geo. Lewis, who stated that
general results counted above all
things. Rev, Herdman wanted to
know why there was so much
seoreoy about the whole business.
He had not been enthusiastic at
the commencement over Mr. Kelley
who had accomplished much since
that time, and he personally would
deeply regret the departure of the
Seoretary under the oiroumstanoes.
Mr. Murdoch wanted the matter of
the resignation left over for the
new Council to deal with and 'so
moved. Mr. Rowley objected to
Mr. Murdoch having anything to
do with the matter, having forfeited his right as a Councillor by
non-attendance, and in this was
upheld by the Chair/ It was then
moved byyMr, Seidelman and seconded by Mr, Noel that the matter
of the Secretary's resignation be
left over until the annual meeting.
This was carried by the Council.
Mr. Rowley then announced that
he wished the Counoil to accept his
resignation, and the meeting adjourned.
It is estimated by Mr. H. S.
Munroe, general manager: of the
Granby Co., that about 5,000,000
feet of lumber will be logged this
year by the .company from their
limits in the Alice Ann district.
Operations will commence at the
Quartz Quarry, situated a few
miles down the inlet from Alice
Arm, and twodonkey engines will
be used for pulling the logs.
It is the intention of the Granby
Co. to log their entire holdings in
the Alice Arm district, unless some
of the limits are disposed of in the
meantime. Arrangements have
been made with Mr. Fred Miller
to log the limits and he will have
control of all work.
The Larkum Island sawmill will
not be operated this year, but a
market will be found for the logs.
The fact that the Granby Co.
have decided to log or dispose of
their limits, will be a source of
great satisfaction to the people of
Alice Arm, as the town is surrounded by timber limits of, tjhe
Granby Co. and logging operatMns
will be carried on here for \ a
number of years'to come.
The Granby Co. own the timber
between the Trethewey limits and
MoGrath Mountain.. They also
own timber limits extending eight
miles up the Kitsault Valley, beside
limits up the Illiance Valley, and
also down the inlet.
.Speaking of the possibilities of
the mining industry around Alice
Ann, Mr. Munroe was in the ..opinion that mining would be active
here in at least two years. The
Granby Co. were anxious for the
development of the camp, as it
would undoubtedly mean that a
large amount of the ore mined
would be treated by the Granby
Co's. plant at Anyox. He stated
that the Company would install a
lead smelter just as soon as the
tonnage was available, and that
they were anxious to see new
properties developed throughout
the north, as every ton of ore
mined in the north was to the
advantage of the Granby Company
Mining engineers of the company
were in the field all the time on the
lookout for promising properties
and any property that had the
earmarks 'of a mine would
receive their attention.
Anyox Basketball
League Games
The Mine Club will hold a Bridge
and Whist Drive in the old Mine
Hall, on Tuesday, February 27th.
at which prizes will be given. After
the oards a dance will be held in
the New Hall. Refreshments will
be served.
BIRTH AT ANYOX
Born to Mr. and Mrs. N. Cam-
panella, at the Anyox Hospital, on
Monday, February 5th, a daughter.
The hoop game gets more
interesting as the season progresses.
We had the Mine five down twice
during the week, and they certainly
put up a great game.
It's a treat to watch the pretty
work of the boys from the hill,
when they meet opponents like the
Elks or the C. M. C. who make
them step for every ounce. The
Beach Combers won both events.
The MinerElks event was inclined to be a trifle tricky, (we cap not
say clumsy, because' there was not
a clumsy man oil the floor.) There
was a.little weight being thrown
about, not all on one side, but Fred
Brown with the whistle was equal
to the occasion, and when the boys
saw that he meant business they
settled down to one of the finest
games we have seen for some time
In the C. M. C.-Mine game the
little fellows liad the better of the
Miners at shooting. Both sides
played a great game, which marred
by the unfortunate incident when
Fred Whittaker ordered one man
off who refused to go, which left the
referee in' a very embarassing
position, because Fred Whittaker
was conferring a favor upon the
teams and the audience by taking
the job of referee.. Interviewing
Mr. Whittakei" later, he said "never
again. If a referee's decision . is
not to be maintained, what's the
use of having a referee."
The Smelter seniors and the C.
M. C. met on the 19th. Both
teams played a smart snappy game,
the Smelter being a little better oh
the finish at basket, netting 30 to
the CM. C.26. 1
In the ladies league, the Blues ,
had their first experience of the
short end of the score this season.
The Bluebirds winning for the first
time in their basketball history by
11 to 10. Miss G. Rashleigh played a fine game, being pretty fleet
for the birds, but Mrs. Roy of the
birds had just got acquainted with
the location ofthe basket that night
and from now on we ought to see
more shooting. Both sides played
a good game everyone working
hard and some have not yet
recovered
The Browns netted their first
win of the season, on Wednesday
they finished one point ahead of
the Bluebirds. For the latter Mrs.
J. Smith appeared for the first time
and she showed promise of developing intoa good player after a little
more experience.
Intermediate League: The High
School boys carried off the laurels
once more by defeating the Coke
Plant 17-11.
The Smelter ! intermediates
defeated the Store in a good game,
by a score of 22-9.
Ladies League: The High School
girls held the Browns down to a
3 to 1 soore. r

Monthly Meeting of
Anyox Parent-Teacher
Association
The February meeting of the
Anyox P.T. A. was poorly attended
last week, in the new school. The
sudden change of weather with its
accompanying bitter wind no doubt
kept many away who would otherwise have been present to hear an
address, which the members have
anticipated for some months with
pleasure. Mr. H. R. King who
was to have spoken on this occasion
very kindly consented to defer his
talk until, the next regular meeting
tliG second Tuesday in March. We
hope that then a large number of
the parents will turn out to hear a
very worth while paper which we
know is in store for them.
Mr. Robertson chairman of the
Sports Committee reported two
teams—boys and girls—from the
sohool entered in the Intermediate
Basketball Series and the formation
. of further class teams for inter-class
/play. Pupils of both High and
Public Schools alike are fired with
a keen athletic enthusiasm and are
making the most of the advantages
offered by the use of the new Community League Gymnasium which
is already proving a very valuable
acquisition to those who avail
themselves of its opportunities to
obtain healthful and wholesome
exercise and recreation. As the
season advances and the various
games are played more skilfully a
friendly class rivalry will no doubt
be evidenced which should react
favorably on the sporting spirit of
the schools. The P. T. A. has
wisely and generously set aside a
sum up to a hundred dollars for the
provision of certain equipment for
the various school teams. This we
know is very much appreciated by
all the players who are now enabled
to appear "on the floor" as more or
less distinctive teams at regular
games.
After the usual business session
the convenor of the Musio Committee provided those present with
an excellent programme which was
the more enjoyable because of the
generosity of those taking part in
facing such a blustery night for
our pleasure. Mr. J. Wrisberg
favored with two vocal selections
and Mr. J. Parker  rendered two
violin solos very effectively. Miss
B. A. Leitch accompanied both
numbers. Tea was served and the
usual half hour social 'intercourse
ensued after which the mooting
closed with,  "The King."
The P. T. A. urges and welcomes
all those who are interested in
School and community welfare to
attend its monthly meeting in the
New Sohool and also to become
active members of this helpful
Social Association..

Vancouver Bond Market
Long term Government, Provincial
and Municipal bonds are rapidly increasing in valile as investors recognize the
necessity of putting their funds out at
present interest rates over a long period of years.
Gilt edged Government and Municipal securities are now selling in
London on a 4 3-4 per cent, basis and
even less, and as sterling is steadily
approaching par, it behoves the
Canadian investor to secure a share of
existing bond issues inasmuch as
Governments, Municipalities and
strongly entrenched companies will, as
a matter of good business, sell new
securities in London where money is
cheaper than in 1913. ' London will
today accept interest rates that Canadian-investors cannot afford to accept.
We repeat our advice-"Sell all short
term Victory Bonds and buy long term
Government, Provincial, Municipal
and Public Utility bonds." A policy
pf. delay it not wise.

Production of Ford Cars
Detroit—Final figures of Ford pro
duction are 1,351,833 automobiles and
trucks in-1922, increase of 300,000 over
1921. Highland Park plant produced
1,232,209 cars last year and 50,166 were
in Canadian plant at Ford Ontario.
Production at foreign plants was:
Manchester, Eng. 27,104 cars and trucks
Buenos Aires, 11,871; Copenhagen 40,
552; Bordeaux 10,548; Cadiz, Spain 6,
331; and Sao Paulo, Brazil, 3r362. Total
tractors built last year was: 8,985,
increase of 100 per cent, over 1921.
Political disturbances in Ireland did
not interrupt production of tractors
at the Cork plant.
Peak month in 1022 was June with
147,770 cars and trncks built.   Record
day last year was August 29th, with
production of 5,690 cars and trucks.
Copper
Copper shipments, 'foreign and
domestic, by American producers, in
December, were about 150,000,000
pounds. This compares with shipments of about 165,000,000 pounds in
November, and an average of about
160,000,000 for the last six months of
1922.
Refinery output was about 165,000,000
pounds in December. Stocks of refined
copper at end of the year were therefore about 295,000,000 pounds. Output
of North and South American mines
was approximately 150,000,000 pounds
in December. Consequently the increase of approximately 15,000,000
pounds in refined sioeks was balanced
by corresponding decrease in blister
stocks.

factoring operations and increased
lumber buying, says the American
Lumberman, Retailers everywhere
buy heavily, as industrial demand is
voluminous and export trade sizable*
Cargo business continues to feature
the fir trade, Of the week's orders,
the unprecedented total of 61 per cent
was for water delivery.
. Other softwoods are likewise strong.
Mills usually having orders far above
production. Prices are advancing
steadily, as stocks are being reduced.
Hardwoods show great activity, and
values are mounting as customers
outbid each other for the little dry
stock offered. ,
Sterling—The pound sterling is
steadily approaching par. ThisXondon
cable gives the fundamental reason.
"British foreign trade iii 1022 showed
markedimproveinent in all its features.
Domestic exports increased £17,000,000
Imports declined £8.4.000,000.
Shrinkable in adverse balance affected was£100,000,000, or20 percent.
The balance fell to within £'10,000,000
ofthe £243,000,000 import balance of
1018. Heavy gains in ,the proportion
of wheat and similar repuireinents
obtainable from Canada and other
dominions marked 1922 trade. A
larger proportionate trade indebtness
than in 1021 was incurred within the
empire.
Imports of 1022 exceed domestic
exports by only 80 per cent, compared
with ft 51 per cent, excess in 1021 and
of 46 per cent in 19U-J. On trade volume
adverse balance, was the smallest in
recent history of British commerce.
"Invisibe exchange, '*> made up of services and investment returns, left a
substantial, surplus after providing for
the trade balance.
Of the increase of £235,000,000 over
191S imports, £177,000,000, was in food,
drink and tobacco. High wheat j and
cotton make the showing less favorable than was expected early in 1922.
Many a youn^ man begins work
with a noble ambition—then the ambition evaporates and he gets fired.
Sound Advice From One Who
Knows
John Wanamaker, one of the world's
greatest merchants, says:
"If there is one enterprise on earth
that a "quitter" should leave severely
alone it is advertising. lTo make a
success of advertising, one must be
prepared to stick like a barnacle to a
boat's bottom. He should know before
he begins it, that he must spend
money—lots of it. Somebody must
tell him that he cannot hope to reap
results commensurate with his expenditures early in the game.
ADVERTISING DOESN'T JERK:
IT PULLS. It begins gently at first,
but the pull is steady. It increases
day by day and year by year until it
creates an irresistible power."
Guggenheim Interests Bond
Property in the Interior
The Guggenheim interests have
bonded the Dome Mountain mining
property, which is situated near Telkwa. The Federal Mining. & Smelting
Co., a subsidiary to the American
Smelting & Refining Co., are the new
owners as a result of negotiations
recently made in New York, by T. E.
Jefferson1, representing the former
owners. Extensive development operations are to be undertaken this
spring.
'   Deepest Mining Shaft in the World
The Motto Velho gold mine is the
deepest mining shaft on earth. It's
lowest level is 7000 feet below the
surface. At this great depth the temperature of the rock is 117 degrees
Fahrenheit, making it necessary to
maintain an elaborate refrigeration
plant on the surface to force cold air
down to the miners. The deeper the
shaft was however the richer the ore
found, so the additional cost of mining is more than offset by the returns.
A former health crank says he has
found that in winter a cold bath can
be improved with some warm water.
